A great job for Cuba
A great social setting for travelers. Easy to meet people and have a good time. Rooms are basic but have a powerpoint and lockable cupboard. Is loud in the rooms when guests come back after midnight as the common area is attached to two. Ania was great and arranged transportation to Viales and also somewhere to stay for us.
Really friendly, really helpful!
Although we had booked for 7 nights in Havana, on our second day we decided we only wanted to stay for 3. Ania was really helpful, especially as she had already submitted the official paperwork for all 7 nights. She helped us find another casa in Varadero. The other guests staying at the hostel were really friendly, there is a good common area where you can sit and chat and there are guide books and maps which were helpful for us. Wifi is quite hard to come by in Cuba so make sure you do all your research and download offline maps before arriving. Maps.me is a great app for this! The one downside perhaps was that there were only two toilet/showers so sometimes had to wait a while. All in all a great hostel.
Really good place and service, very clean.
Our experience of Casa de Ania was really negative. We booked a private twin room and upon arrival were made to wait for half an hour before being told that the hostel was full and that we would be moved to another hostel 5 minutes down the road. We ended up sleeping in the spare room of a lady down the road, with another traveler sharing the room, and I was made to sleep on a reclining chair that had had a futon thrown over it. It was very uncomfortable. When we came to pay, we were made to pay for the full price of the private twin room that we had originally booked. Maybe staying at the actual hostel is ok, but I felt like we were treated poorly and I would recommend fellow travelers to stay somewhere else so you can avoid experiencing what we did.
Fantastic warm and familiar Hostel
We've stayed here when we arrived in Cuba and it was such a nice and warm place that we decided to go back at the end of the trip instead of booking a Hotel. Hostel is clean. Area is a perfect location to go out for a walk. Good places in the neighbourhood to go out for dinner (Toke is a recommendation!). We'll definitely go back if we're going to cuba.
Best Casa in Havana
This is the best Casa in cuba for solo travelers and people who are looking for a hostel type accommodation. Everything was perfect and Ania is the best host, incredibly friendly, and always willing to help. I would love to come back again. Thank you for everything Ania.
A True Hostel. Not private separate rooms
Located in Centro Havana, around a 20 min walk or cheap cab fare to Old Havana. Casa de Ania was nicely located on a quite street near a major intersection making it easy for cab service and to be dropped off nearby without the exact address. Personal keys were given to each traveler to enter and leave as they pleased. All the staff at Casa de Ania were incredibly friendly and helpful. Apparently it's hard to find a hostel of this size in Cuba and you usually stay in "Casa Particulares" which have a few private rooms with a bed or two. Casa de Ania had I believe 3 rooms with 6-8 beds each. I stayed two days before here and was lucky to find people at my hostel, here i met a mosaic of travelers. True internationalism and we all got along quite well. The hostel had a fan above each bed and an air conditioner in each room (although no one bothered to turn it on). A personal locker large enough to fit a large travel backpack and a shelf to organize your items. Two shared bathrooms with a shower, toilet and sink each, and a balcony if you were willing to move a bed or two out of the way temporarily. Food and drinks were available for purchase, and the area had plenty of short walk distance cafeterias and restaurants. The main room was tagged with all sorts of messages from previous travelers from everywhere. I felt comfortable, safe, and well loved.
In total I stayed at Ania's place for around one week. Nice place, Ania and her Crew are very friendly and helpful, the place was clean and secure. The casa is well located and the neighborhood is quiet. The Old Havana is within walking distance. I can recommend this place to stay in Havana.
